Survivorman sets out on craft beer adventure with LB

Picture of Les Stroud, aka SurvivormanBaysville, ON — (July 23, 2014) Lake of Bays Brewing Company and Les Stroud Productions are proud to announce that the two have teamed up to produce a series of Survivorman-themed beers.

“We are looking forward to developing some truly wild and unique beers,” said Darren Smith, president and CEO of Lake of Bays Brewing. “Survivorman is about resilience in nature, and Lake of Bays is proudly based and branded around the frontier and ‘the industrious North.’ It is such a great fit for both of us. We can hardly wait.”

Les Stroud is equally enthusiastic. “Survivorman and Canadian-made, awesome beer by Lake of Bays Brewing. There is no greater match up in the history of civilization!”

The company plans to release the first beer in the Survivorman Series in early 2015.

Les Stroud is the internationally acclaimed creator, filmmaker and star of Survivorman, the TV phenomenon in which Stroud documents his struggles in the harshest of conditions in wildernesses around the world. Survivorman is one of the highest rated shows in the history of Travel and Escape Canada, OLN Canada, the Science Channel US and Discovery Channel US.

Survivorman virtually spawned the entire genre of ‘survival TV’ and remains one of the highest-rated repeat shows on the Discovery Channel. Stroud is also a musician, an activist and a father, as well as an advanced survival trainer for the Canadian Military Armed Forces.

One of Ontario’s fastest-growing craft breweries, Lake of Bays Brewing Company has four year-round beers, four seasonal beers and a series of limited edition beers. Lake of Bays is the official brewery of the NHL Alumni Association and the CFL Alumni Association.

Press Release: Introducing Signature Series Club

Signature Series Club - only $50 - introductory offerTORONTO AND BAYSVILLE (December 6, 2013)

Ontario craft beer and hockey memorabilia collectors have something new and innovative to celebrate with the launch of the Signature Series Club, a brand new lineup of tribute beers and collectibles, available exclusively online for an introductory special of $50.

Collectors who join the Signature Series Club will receive four Signature Series limited-edition beers — one new release approximately every three months, in exclusive hand-numbered bottles with matching numbered printer’s proofs, as well as a VIP tour of the brewery, located in Baysville, Ontario near Algonquin Park.

Each release is a new premium quality artisan-brewed beer paying tribute to a different hockey legend. “These are very special beers, paying tribute to some of the greatest hockey players of all time,” said NHL Alumni Association executive director Mark Napier. “It’s wonderful to see them being immortalized in this way.”

 

FIRST SIGNATURE SERIES RELEASE: CHINA WALL – JOHNNY BOWER VIENNA DARK LAGER

Picture of Johnny Bower as a young man.[UPDATE DECEMBER 13, 2013: CHINA WALL IS SOLD OUT. ALL SIGNATURE SERIES ORDERS GOING FORWARD BEGIN WITH THE NEXT RELEASE, TO BE FINALIZED SHORTLY.] Up first is China Wall, featuring Johnny Bower, one of the greatest goaltenders of all time. Bower earned the nickname China Wall due to his fearlessness in goal and because of his “ancient” age.

During 12 seasons with Toronto, Johnny Bower’s fearlessness in goal earned him 200 stitches, a toothless grin and the nickname China Wall. With his patented poke-check, top goalie trophies and four cups, this hall of famer is considered one of the greatest goaltenders of all time. During the twilight of his career Bower donned a mask, for a total of 17 games.

A SPECIAL BREW

China Wall - Johnny Bower Vienna Dark Lager - Bottle and Glass
Four releases per year. Pictured: China Wall – Johnny Bower Vienna Dark Lager

Vienna Dark Lager is an influential beer style first brewed in 1830s Austria. China Wall pours reddish-brown and imparts the warming character of toasted malt with a slight hint of caramel. Clocking in at 7% alc./vol., only 12,000 bottles of China Wall are being produced.

A limited number of each Signature Series release will be available at select LCBOs, but the bottles will not be hand-numbered and they will not be guaranteed to be in stock.

SIGNATURE SERIES CLUB MEMBERSHIP AVAILABLE ONLINE FOR $50

“We are producing each of these Signature Series releases in very limited quantities,” said Lake of Bays Brewing Co. president and CEO Darren Smith. “We anticipate they will sell out quickly, and we know there are real collectors out there who will absolutely want all of them. So we decided to do something a little different to make sure that anyone who really wants them all can get them all. You are guaranteed to receive all four releases if you join the Signature Series Club.”
